Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Hey Losers

Did this get everyone's attention?

I'm wondering if anybody can pinpoint the last time Garcia sang the "sweet Suzy" lyric in Loser. I had always thought that the last one was in '71, but listening to the first half of the Europe '72 tour, it pops up a few times...

From the GD Lyric & Song Finder:

"after a while, Garcia dropped "sweet Susie" from this line, though he occasionally seemed to forget and bring it back again! It rarely appears after 1972, but instances are 5/14/74, 6/18/74 and 1/10/79. "

This question comes up here periodically. Is there a reason it matters? Just wondering.

I guess it matters because it doesn't matter. It surprised me when I heard it in '72 the other day and then I found myself wondering about it. Where better to consult then here?

(I didn't realize that it'd been covered already--apologies for one more redundant thread.)

I didn't mean to chide you for redunancy, I just wondered why this question seems to trouble so many people!
